38" Goodyear MT/R's?

I guess they dont make a 38" one? Looks like I am going to be getting 37" ones. That kinda sucks but I guess 37's are good enough! Anyone know the best place to get them at online? I have Evan (SanityAside) checking what he can get them for at discount tire company tommorow. Also you think I should go to 4.88's instead of 4.56's cause thats a pretty big damn tire!

with 40s I think you'd be hurtin' your engine and tranny a bit more than they already are! I think the 37s and 4.88s would be pretty good.

Yea but I think I can get the tires without selling my zuki with the income tax. I was just reading your old thread on wanting 37's and you got a regular bed. I have stepside which means no flares on the front and I dont offroad my truck at all. I am thinking I can run them for 2 months then do the body lift. IDK I will think it over tonight. Cause I really want to keep the zuki.

Go and measure your clearnce. If you have 1.5" more, I would say it will fit (tires will be 1" bigger all the way around).

Or just get 35's and have some nice gap!!!

Yeah, 37's with just spindles is a little too much. If they fit though I'm goin to be really kicking myself for only getting 33's ( I already am now cause I got a body lift on the way).

I got 3" to the nearest spot and if in fact the Goodyears run 36.8 that should leave me plenty of room till I get a body lift

My 33's scrubbed like a **** on my flares and that's with t-bars maxed. Since you don't have them and numbers don't lie I was wrong. Man, I KNEW I should have waited and got bigger tires. I hope you get to keep your Samurai man, and you never finished about the "death shackles" I got on mine.
